Is Microdermabrasion Right for Me?

Microdermabrasion is an ideal skin rejuvenation treatment for healthy adults seeking aesthetic improvements to relatively minor skin irregularities and imperfections. It is a non-invasive treatment that does not require cosmetic surgery, but it is a safe and effective procedure for treatment of the face, hands, chest, neck, knees and even elbows. Microdermabrasion works well for skin of any type or color, and results are visible almost immediately with virtually no recovery period.

The best candidates have realistic expectations about what microdermabrasion can accomplish. Board-certified Detroit cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rifai has more than 25 years of experience helping his patients figure out how to best achieve the results they want. Sometimes, microdermabrasion is not always the right choice.

Microdermabrasion might not be right for you if you suffer from:

  • Deep scarring
  • Severe acne
  • Facial warts
  • Eczema
  • Active keloids
  • Undiagnosed lesions
  • Sunburns or active rosacea
  • Unstable diabetes
  • A recent herpes outbreak
  • Skin cancer

In some cases, if you suffer from more severe types of skin damage and deeper wrinkles, you may want to consider alternative advanced skincare treatments like chemical peels or laser resurfacing.

For a limited time, Dr. Rifai is offering Groupon discounts for microdermabrasion treatments.
